ALAN BURKE : 8pm

Alan Burke is widely regarded as one of the finest ballad singers of his genera-tion and possesses an almost inexhaustible repertoire of traditional, contemporary and self-penned songs in both the English and Irish languages. Accompanied by his unique driving guitar style, Alan’s powerful presence and technique have featured on two highly acclaimed solo albums, On The Other Hand (1998) and Tip Of The Tongue (2000) alongside numerous recordings and collaborations with a number of bands and projects that have formed the core of a great life in music. A commanding stage presence, with a voice that is powerful, sensitive and crystal clear, Alan’s gigs are always truly memorable.


He began his musical career as a drummer, before making his name in traditional music circles in the 1980's and 90's as lead singer, guitarist, and bodhrán player with the tremendous band Afterhours, with whom he made three albums - Afterhours, Hung Up And Dry, and Up To Here– and toured extensively worldwide. Since then Alan has appeared as a member of a number of bands including At First Light, Airla, Tulsk and Rambling Boys of Pleasure.
Alan has been heavily involved in collaborative projects, and was the cornerstone of the four acclaimed annual Irish Sea Sessions concerts, tours and albums produced in Liverpool, Ireland and London. The Sea Sessions saw him combine with Declan O’Rourke, Damien Dempsey, Pauline Scanlon, Emily Portman and many more. In addition, Alan has worked both as a record producer and as an actor, including the play ‘This Is What We Sang’ that won Production of the Year at the First Irish Theatre Festival in New York 2010. He has also presented TV programmes in the Irish language for the BBC and TG4.


Burke's strengths are his voice, a sweet mellifluous instrument, judiciously used and an understanding of his material. Alan Burke's rites of passage from band leader to first rate solo artist are complete. 'On The Other Hand' proves that. - Rock 'n Reel
